Hershey's Train Line is a present for my son, Hershel, for his 3rd birthday. Draw a path around the obstacles to get the train from one side of the screen to the other!
At any intersection, the train always follows a straight path when possible. When faced with a T intersection, the train always turns left.
If you've got any young people in your family that are as into trains as my son is, I hope this makes them smile!
Very cute. Gold star. Could we please have a visible mouse cursor to help us know where we're placing track?
Puzzle challenge: make a track where completely non-trademark infringing blue tank engine loops endlessly such that he crosses at least one segment of track in both directions.
I don't think this is possible on every layout of obstacles, reset the cart to get a different layout.
@Cowirrie - Wow, thanks for spending the time with it to come up with extra challenges! You can enable the mouse-cursor by pressing 'Z' or 'X' when playing on desktop.
I'm actually planning to expand this into a puzzle game intended for adults, with those sort of challenge mechanics - like, you'll need to make a track which passes over collectables before making it to the exit. Those fun loops are great puzzle inspiration! :)
I've been playing it in a similar way, but with a different puzzle variant: how can I make the train trip as long as possible, yet still have the train eventually complete its journey? Usually this involves setting up a long section of track with a turnaround, as pictured.
